Ht. 5'3", Start: 190 lb, Today: 187 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - Hey guys! I'm new here and I must say losing weight is a big challenge for me. I live in a town that is full of girls with the most amazing bodies and I cant help but be envious. Though my number is big I hold my weight well! I'm looking forward to losing this weight because I know there is a skinny girl inside me just dying to come out! My junior prom is coming up and my best guy friend asked me to go. He's gorgeous so him asking made me feel pretty amazing! I want to lose so weight before prom though because the last thing I want to be doing that night is trying to cover up because I feel uncomfortable! REMEMBER EVERYONE: you're all beautiful, don't let anyone tell you other wise and beauty is only skin deep! Reply I would LOVEEE to talk with one of you!

I've been trying to lose weight for a while now, but i'll lose a few pounds, and then think i'll reward my self for a few days and end up gaining it back. I've kept these 5 pounds off for about a month, and was proud. I'm polish, and today was paczki day. paczkis are a kind of polish donut, and today I ate three custard ones as a reward, without seeing how many calories they were. I just checked and they are...take a guess.... 1500 calories. each. thats 4500 calories, not counting my other meals! (they add up to about 750 calories) I ate 5250 calories today! thats more than a pound and a half! Please tell me what I should do. please help me, someone. I feel like puking, I'm so mad at myself, but i don't think that will help. I'm in tears, please help me what do i do I need to lose this weight I ate as much today as I do in a normal week! what do i do?

Ht. 4'8", Start: 125 lb, Today: 115 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 100 lb - hi guys, sorry, I'm writing on a phone. I need some advice. I used to weigh around 90 lbs, then over about six months we went on a cruise, and moved, and had a new school, and our six chickens were killed. Now it's holiday season. As you can tell, I've gained weight, but also lost some. I need help with the last 15 pounds. I'm running/walking up to two miles each day, but I need help with eating less. I try to do the eat half thing, but I end up eating the other half later because I get hungry. What can I do? Oh, fyi, my family isn't very supportive... And I haven't been to the docters in a while. Can anyone help?

Ht. 145 cm, Start: 97 kg, Today: 98 kg (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 41 kg - I need serious help! This is getting to the point where I can't even walk properly! Every day my family gather around and pull uo my shirt and start playing with my belly saying we really need to sort this out. I just sit there and sigh. My mum tries to help me around by pulling my belly up and motivating me. And I get weighed everyday. We bring the scale to the living room and everyone watches while I get weighed. It makes me so sad. :(  (Note: 145 cm, 98 kg is 4'9.1", 216.053 lb.)

Ht. 5'9", Start: 203 lb, Today: 218 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 175 lb - Hi Everyone,
I'm new here, but I've been trying to lose weight for years. It's never really bothered me, but those around me have commented on it a lot. I started trying to lose weight going daily to the gym and eating healthier foods, but I keep getting fatter because even though I'm eating those healthier foods i still sneak the cookies and other junk but I know I'm not fooling anyone. Sometimes I think whatever, I'll just get fat I dont care, I can still find a boyfriend who will like me even though I'm fat. I dont know should I just give up I dont know what else to do.

Ht. 5'10", Start: 413 lb, Today: 413 lb (BMI: 59), Goal: 250 lb - Hey everybody. My name is Richie and I'm seriously overweight and ready to drop some serious pounds. When I graduated from high school in 2008 I was the same height I am now and only 297, so I've put on 116 pounds in 3 years. I was always a fat kid, weighing 200 lbs in 7th grade and played football in high school, and ate big to play center. When football season ended I was 265. I go to college and work 40 hours a week as assistant manager at a restaurant. Everyone in my family is overweight and so is my girlfriend. Last week at work I squatted down to pick up something that dropped and my pants split all the way up the back (size 60). That incident made me take a step back n take a look at how fat I've gotten. I'm aslig for some advice from you all about how to start a diet. I've been trying to cut back on my intake since last week... (view more)
